Hazy redish amber colour with thin off white head. Sour acidic nose. Bitter sour acidic taste with lingering sour finish. This seems more like a flemish sour than a lambic. frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2005
GCBF. Pour a light reddish brown. Aromas of vinegar, wood almost like a flemmish sour. The taste started off with some woody notes and funkiness and then a big hit of sour, followed by a lingering funkiness. The sour was far to much for me.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2010 I must disagree with the others.This was horrible.Visually unappealing.Slightly sour, but overpoweringly acetic, to the point of ordering fries to pour it on.
A very poor offering
Many years later, this is even worse Oakes (18836) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2005
Cloudy, slighlty purplish brown colour. Aroma is fruity, with cobweb mustiness and some slightly plasticy notes - a byproduct of the fruit probably. Strong acid flavour - mainly lactic but a fair bit of acetic, too, accented by fruit, leather and wood. Puckering finish. It doesn’t have the smoothness nor cleanliness of a world class lambic but is quite tasty and would be good for blending. JoeMcPhee (9550) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2005 2nd annual Vancouver Caskival. Deep hazy red-purple beer. Low carbonation. Nice tart aroma. Fairly acetic but still has a crisp lactic character as well. A touch of funk, but barnyard character is still a bit restrained. Light sweet cassis fruitiness. Flavour is tart and crisp. Nice and refreshing.
